have been showing a tight race with president obama around 49, 50%, mitt romney in the mid 40s or so, so mitt romney is within striking distance right now but there's no doubt that 47% comment did hurt him. >> chris cizilla, a decision today in pennsylvania, a legal decision. >> yep. >> which could have a big impact because if pennsylvania ever were going to be in play, now it will not according to what the republican hopes had been. this was the voter i.d. law and struck down by a judge, said there's no way to get voter i.d.s to so many people in time for election day. >> right. this was always i think because as you point out, a narrow timeline, five weeks to the day from the election, but what this does is it does not put that strict voter i.d. law in place for pennsylvania. and i think barring some change or data i've not seen, i'm not convinced pennsylvania was in play even if law had been upheld. i just don't think the votes add up for republicans in pennsylvania. i always say it's like charlie brown, lucy and the football. every time charlie brown tries to kick the football, l
gregory that on thursday morning it's going to be a new race, he said mitt romney's going to be standing on the same stage with the president and i'm telling you come thursday morning the entire narrative of this race is going to change? >> well, look, campaigns are very hard, there's a lot of -- of course, a lot of high stakes in the debates with governor christie i love his optimism. the governor feeds off that optimism. many members of the campaign continue to feed off it. i don't think any one moment will fundamentally alter this race. it's going to be close to the very end, we're preparing like it's going to be very close. i think the obama campaign is preparing like it's going to be very close and i think we're going to be in a very good position after this debate to go all the way to election day and be in a position to win. so that's where our focus remains. >> kitchen madden, good luck tomorrow night. we'll see you out there in denver. thanks so much. >> thanks very much. >> and up next, your viewers guide to those debate moments we all remember. how many were really game change
on wednesday night to begin to alter this race across the board. romney's team is loading him up with a bunch of zingers for the debate according to to "the new york times." romney has memorized these zingers and has been practicing them on aids since august. romney obviously did well enough in the primary debates to make it this far, no doubt. although most of his competition wasn't as tough as president obama. romney also had some memorable moments. >> i'll tell you what. $10,000 bet? >> i'm not in the betting business. >> the answer is self-deportation, which is people decide they can do better by going home because they can't find work here because they don't have legal departmentation to allow them to work here. >> i can't have illegals. rick, i'm speaking. i'm speaking. you get 30 seconds. this is the way the rules work here is i get 60 seconds. and then you get 30 seconds to respond, right? >> well, let's bring in democratic strategist chris ko kn kofinis and susan del percio. i think romney is going to lose his cool. susan, did governor chris christie think he was helping mitt romney
romney. >> this whole race will be turned upside down thursday morning. >> what are you doing, christie? for god sake's if romney fails to meet those heavy expectations he's going to lose the general election and the republican party and that's going to leave open 26 -- oh. >> setting aside for 2016, part of me applauds the fact that christie is saying what everybody believes which it's a proving ground for mitt romney. and some part of me believes maybe it would be good if mitt romney said you know what, tomorrow night is a big deal and there going to be some wins and losses and i want to deliver a powerful and specific message about what i want to offer and the path forward. >> you have to be able to do that. i think all that chris christie, all that was missing from the interview was a christie 2016 t-shirt. he's the worst surrogate ever. >> or maybe the best. >> i don't know. i think it is true that the stakes are higher for mitt romney. what the president wants is stays is. if the race remains as it is now he's in good shape. romney needs a big moment and the risk is he'll push too
of that. >> the whole race will be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> reporter: but romney's running mate paul ryan downplayed the debate. >> i don't think one event will make or break the campaign. >> reporter: romney is trailing in the polls in most must-win states. tara mergener for cbs news, the white house. >>> in california, 10% of parents exempt their children from the mandatory school vaccinations. yesterday, governor brown signed a new law making vaccine waivers tougher to get. but a last-minute change is giving parents a new out. >> reporter: at tri-valley pediatrics, this 10-month-old is getting a flu shot. his mother talked to the doctor before making her decision. >> we definitely rely on our pediatrician as an expert. we put our son's health in his hands. >> reporter: a new california law aims to have more parents talking to their pediatrician before they are allowed to reject mandatory vaccines. >> overall, i think it's a step in the right direction. >> reporter: under current state law, before attending school or daycare, kids are required for certain vaccin
on the presidential race. those finding suggest that president obama maintains a slight lead over mitt romney but the race is statistically a dead heat. a three-point lead. 49-46% but that is well within the survey's margin of error. two weeks ago after the political conventions, the nbc "wall street journal" poll showed mr. obama with a five-point lead over romney. it was 50-45% back then will. >>> police are trying to figure out what sparked a large fight in downtown frederick, maryland. a fight that ended in gun fire. it broke out yesterday afternoon on west south street. by the time officers got to the scene, the crowd had dispersed after somebody fired the gun. police believe they found one of the men. he had some serious stab wounds and was taken to the hospital. nobody has been arrested. >>> tonight, an anne arundel county man tells news4, he is not a hoarder after officers seized dozens of unusual animals from his hole. the animal control officers took a pig, a bird, turtles and a goldfish from his home in pasadena. officers said many of the animals were without food or water. they al
isn't about winning. polls show romney in a close race with the president, but trailing badly in some of the swing states that will decide the presidential election. well, here is mitt romney, we have heard these words before, sounds as though he's downplaying expectations as they say. take a listen. >> people want to know who is going to win, who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make and there is going to be all the scoring of winning and losing. >> so romney is saying, no, it is not about winning, not about losing, it is about america. but you have a lot of republicans, newt gingrich, for example, saying, hey, mitt romney, get out there, pick a fight, and win it. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i th
to the head-to-head with mitt romney. this is where the race has tightened a bit. the president's number is steady at 49. mitt romney has picked up a couple in the last couple weeks, sits at 46. what's helping him? republican voters more enthusiastic, they make it through the likely voter screen. it's been a couple tough weeks for mitt romney. that 47% mark has left a mark, if you will. when we asked, is there anything you've heard in the last few weeks that made you more favorable or less favorable on mitt romney, 54% say what they've heard has made them less favorable. that said, the president has a couple things not going for him on the issue of libya and egypt. more people disapprove of how he's handled the situation than approve. but the overarching theme here, brian, and why is the president in a commanding small lead? 57% tell us the economy is in recovery. highest number we've recorded on that question. >> chuck todd already in denver, part of our team on the ground there. and he'll be part of our on air nbc news team tomorrow evening for our live coverage. that begins 9:00 p.m.
ads claiming that mitt romney's going to race taxes on the middle class. now, mitt romney has never made that claim. this is coming from a report making all kinds of arguments. and he's made all kinds of assumptions that the romney campaign has rejected. >> he's trying to close a lot of loopholes i know he doesn't want to close in order to make that true. >> also puts harvey rosen, you can also generate enough growth to avoid a middle class tax increase. there are a loft credible folks saying something else. it's a fact he's going to raise middle class tax. >> the obama campaign, david plouffe is a chris christie of the campaign saying their campaign is built on a tripod of lies and the president has said sometimes they just make things up. so it sounds like the democratic side is going to say, hey, liars. >> last i checked, isn't this called politics? you have lying all the time in politics. it is our responsibility to call folks out on it. on my tv 1 show, i have a segment called the biggest damn lie. it's the biggest one each week we hear in politics. >> that's got to be a very t
saying that mitt romney will lose the race for the white house. it's like it goes without saying for these guys now. this is the guy more in charge of the republican senate message than anybody else in the country. and his pitch is mitt romney is going to lose. you need us so democrats don't control everything. everybody has been waiting to find out if mitt romney looks like such a losing prospect that republicans will be cut lose to essentially campaign on their own to campaign against them. but campaigning on the assumption that it mitt romney is going to lose? that's something new. and it's even weirder when voiced by scott brown tonight. that's coming up. >>> it seems to me first of all from what i understand from doctors, that's really rare. if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> that's the senate candidate from missouri this year, congressman todd akin. one of the things lost as soon as he said what he said about legitimate rape is his democratic opponent claire mccaskill had hand selected todd akin to be her opponent be
in that race bob casey ahead of his republican challenger by eight points. as mitt romney's, shall we say, second place standing starts to look like more and more of a permanent residence as it seems like a long shot for winning the presidency, the down ticket effect of that is starting to become a bigger part of the conversation. you saw a manifestation of that last week on this show when nancy pelosi came on this show and said, essentially, democrats can win back the house. nancy pelosi said not only is she confident that democrats can get the 25 seats they need to take e back control of the house, which is a huge number, she says she, quote, liked to have 35 seats, which would be a lot. and while it is news worthy that the democrats think they can take back the house, it should be said that a number of other observers looking at the same prospect are call k the idea that the democrats could take back the house pretty much impossible. politico publishing a piece on it. one of the consequences of republicans winning so many seats in the state legislatures in the big election of 2010 is t
for mitt romney to change the race in battleground states like colorado, florida, and ohio. nbc's steve handelsman joins us live with more on what to speck during the rumble in the rockies. steve? >> reporter: i like that, pat, thanks. good evening. this is the campus of the university of denver. south and west of downtown on the way to the mountains. this is the site of tomorrow night's possibly critical first presidential debate. it will be watched nationwide. some voters in ohio camped out to be the first to cast early ballots in this battleground state. most states start voting before november 6th. putting more focus on the first debate in denver. doug hudson, andrew and chris run bicycle company in colorado. they took me out to red rocks today. these guys will watch the debate. andrew, hoping for a breakthrough by his candidate, mitt romney. >> i want him to talk about conservative values, especially economically. empowering small businesses. >> reporter: chris used to vote republican. not anymore. >> what changed my mind recently is it seems to have gotten away from taking care of
to the house and senate races. that is not good news for mitt romney. >> cenk: there you have it on fox business saying it is over. they're diverting the money. we were going to count for you how many days it took before the recommendation gave in, and it turns out it only took 14 days after the tape was released showing mitt romney's 47% comment. that's when we start started the "countdown." it's already over. rich owners saying this guy cannot win let's at least try to save the senate and the house. damn that hurts. this is the reason why. right now "huffington post" with the announcement if the election was held today, when would be the likely outcome. he only needs 270 to win. even the associated press, which is much more conservative has president obama has 271 already locked up, which means he would win the election. romney is only at 206. furthermore the associated press says in order for mitt romney to win, he would have to switch all these states. he needs florida colorado, and nevada and north carolina, and new hampshire, and virginia, and either ohio or iowa. but he's not win
jersey governor chris christie didn't get the memo that romney sucks at this. >> i think you will see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> in whole race will be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> what are you doing, christi? >> for god's sake if romney fails to meet those heavy expectations he will lose the general election creating chaos in the republican party and leave out 2016 -- oh! >> the jersey is strong in this one. >> so all these guys to have a mild familiarity with the english language and it is considered a win. can we hear from someone not affiliated with the campaigns, what their expectation might be? >> both men have a monumental undertaking for the first debate, one of them has to come off as nicer and less air began than he really is and the other has to be zero more normal and lestrange than he really is. >> jon: then how did we end up with these two idiots? look, we are not looking for coherent ideology, americans are just looking for assurance the next president isn't going to be a weirdo. who thinks she better than us. how exa
president obama leading mitt romney 49 to 47% nationally among likely voters. >> it is a tight race, a very tight race. >> reporter: the poll asked who would do a better job on budgeting and spending, romney beat the president 50 to 43%. >> when it gets down to the ballot, although he is ahead on the most important factor, he is behind because of the likability factor. >> reporter: kennedy says the president still needs to make his case to close the deal. >> i think the thing that obama needs to accomplish is that he needs to show people he has a plan to grow the economy. >> reporter: while the campaigns are downplaying debate expectations. >> governor romney, he is a good debater. i'm just okay. >> reporter: what is not debatable is the interest. the live audience is invitation only so that means the tv audience is expected to be in the millions. now, between the two candidates, mitt romney is actually the more battle tested of the two having taken part in some 20 primary debates on his way to the republican nomination. president obama, on the other hand, as you know, had no primary challe
the other races. there was a statement that said that the romney campaign now wants to frame this election as a choice and not a referendum which is something totally different. it says this election is a choice between two very different visions of our nation's future . . . interesting shift of strategy, isn't it? >> i think it means it is going to be more aggressive instead of trying to run the ball up the middle. i think they are going to be throwing passes. if you are making at it comparison, you have to show what your policies are. >> but they have been quiet about this stuff -- >> that's right. and that's what i think they are going to do in the debate. >> jennifer: do you not think the shift to choice is a response to the fact that the election was becoming more of a referendum not on president obama but to mitt romney. yes. absolutely. so it does reflect their change in their strategy. the only thing is about the amount of money i don't think that will be the defining issue in this debate. >> jennifer: what do you think, peter? do you think the
in ohio. with less than 48 hours until the debate, grace lee explains how both sides are racing to lower the expectations. >> reporter: both the obama and romney campaigns are doing their best to lower expectations ahead of wednesday's debate. >> we expected all along that governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any candidate in history. >> president obama is a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time. >> reporter: the president has not had as much time to prepare for the debates because he's busy being commander in chief. >> most often debates don't make that big a difference. quite a few have lost an election with a debate. >> reporter: these matchups can produce a memorable line like in 1980 between then-governor ronald reagan and president jimmy carter. >> there you go again. >> reporter: and lloyd benson's swipe at dan quayle. >> i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy because friend of mine. sen

if that's even possible right now. the public broadly speaking expects mitt romney to win. low expectations i suppose. the history as your comments suggest is that debates don't tend to change the trajectory of a presidential race very much. there has been a few cases where they have but just a few you are looking at this stage if you are a romney voter or fan for something that would change the apparent course of the election which you look at the thing nationally and it appears to be a pretty tight race. if you look at it in the key states. president obama appears to be ahead nearly everywhere. and by a significant margins in some places such as ohio where it's several points. now, you can't say that it's over. it certainly is not straight line projections are very dangerous in politics. things can change. always on the lookout for something to change it debate might much although it hasn't happened very often. >> bill: i think it's going to happen this year one way or the other. this is the stat that i will point to the rat muffin poll has the president up by three which is

says while the race is close, there are bright spots for romney. the poll asked who would do a better job on budgeting and spending. romney beat the president 50- 43%. >> when it gets down to the ballot itself, although he's ahead still on the most important issue in people's minds, he's still behind overall largely because of that likability factor. >> but on which candidate would stand up for the middle class, the poll found the president won 51- 43% over romney, but kennedy says the president still needs to make his case to close the deal. >> i think the thing that obama needs to accomplish is he needs to show people he has a plan for how to grow the economy. >> while the campaigns are downplaying debate expectations -- >> government romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> he needs to give the american people the choice that we're offering. >> what's not debating is the interest. the live audience is invitation only, so that means the tv audience is expected to be in the millions. between the two candidates mitt romney is actually the more battle tested of the two having tak
